In a visual world an image is everything; and everyone wants a piece.
Having the current version of an image, in the right file format, in the right place for each person who needs it in an organization is a considerable task.
Adobe Illustrator® has become the de-facto standard for creating product designs and illustrations. As not everyone needs or can accommodate the native Adobe Illustrator file format and the burden of generating standard file format copies is left to the creative branch of our business, taking the focus off of design. Now they must ensure that a JPEG is generated and in the right place for every change to each image, vastly increasing their workload.
E-Spec Convert-It! automates the creation of these files to meet the image needs of your organization. When the Adobe Illustrator® file is created or edited, E-Spec Convert-It! automatically creates JPEG, PNG, PSD and/or PDF files in specified target locations.
Convert-It! delivers your files to where they are needed:
- Product specification package
- Online Media Catalog
- Line Plans and Marketing boards
- Line Sheets and other Sales tools
- To Product Development for their technical sketches
- The rest of your organization.
This simple solution to a complex problem will help ease the workload of your creative staff, increasing their productivity of creative output, while still meeting the demand for a high quality standard file format to be available to the rest of the organization. The benefits are clear: reduce redundant work, save time, increased productivity and accuracy, and lower costs.
Maximize the efficiency of Adobe illustrator® and benefit from seamless access to your valuable graphics files across your organization. Make your designers and everyone else that uses those images more efficient with E-Spec Convert-It!.
